The hotel just across Lafayette Park from the White House, and an easy walk to the Metro Center Metro Stop, and a number of attractions (such as the Smithsonian Museums). Given the location, it came as no surprise that a number of guests were attending White House Holiday evens.
The Hay Adams is a full service hotel, and yet it is not huge. The lobby felt more like being in a private home than a grand convention hotel. All of the staff: the doormen, room service waiter, the concierge and the receptionist were friendly and very professional.
My room (a deluxe double) was not huge, but very tastefully furnished, with a nice marble bathroom. The hotel has kept the original stucco work and moldings on the ceilings and walls, but installed up to date wallpaper and carpeting and furniture. The free WiFi was good, not slow, as is so often the case with hotel WiFi.
The room service breakfast was quite good.
Washington has many first rate hotels, but this one is absolutely deserving of its rating.
